N. Korea Post­pones U.S. Talks


UNITED NA­TIONS (Reuters) - North Korea post­poned talks with the United States on Thurs­day “be­cause they weren’t ready,” U.S. Am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions Nikki Ha­ley said as she urged Py­ongyang to im­ple­ment a June deal be­tween the two coun­tries.

Speak­ing to re­porters be­fore and af­ter a closed-door U.N. Se­cu­rity Coun­cil meet­ing on North Korea sanc­tions, Ha­ley said it is now North Korea’s turn to act. She also crit­i­cized Rus­sia for try­ing to lift bank­ing re­stric­tions that are in­tended to curb the Asian na­tion’s nu­clear pro­gram.
